SCHOOL FACILrriES REPORT 

Early in 1964 the School Committee requested that 
the School Facilities Committee investigate sites for addi- 
tional building for the expected enrollments in our secondary 
section of our school system. 

We started this study beginning with the request for 
an updating of the enrollment projections. These were pre- 
pared by the School Administration Staff. They were checked 
against the same type of a projection done in preparation of 
the so-called Benjamin report by "Educational Service 
Associates" School Consultants and finally by Mr. Domas, 
Administrator of the School Building Assistance Commission. 

All of these studies we could expect between 800 or 
850 in grades 7 through 12 by 1973 thus the need for add- 
itional facilities is established. The present school here is 
designed for 612. 

At this point the Benjamin report is again examined 
and we find that the recommendation is that due to the small 
numbers expected in the grades 7 & 8 that additional land be 
added to the present High School site in order to provide 
facilities for grades 7 through 12 for the decade ahead and 



29 



point out further that this scheme affords the best educa- 
tional advantages and economy in construction. 

Mr. Domas offers the same advice. 

The Educational Specifications prepared and submit- 
ted to the School Building Assistance Commission point up dis- 
tinct Educational advantages to continue the Secondary School 
system as it is if possible. All that has been found to this 
point is that this Committee is duty bound in the best interest 
of the Education of our children and the citizens as a whole 
is to continue the study of the present High School site and 
the land around it for future school facilities development. 
In order to bring a study of this type to its final conclusion 
and make a firm recommendation it is necessary that funds 
be made available to engage the professional services of an 
architect and engineer. 

If this motion we are about to make is voted the first 
phase of the Architects study known as preliminary plans 
will be presented to the School Committee and the Advisory 
Board and to any interested body in the Town before the 
second step in the motion covering working drawings is 
undertaken. Harry H. Reed, Jr., Chairman 

School Facilities Committee 

Voted unanimously by a voice vote, that the report of 
this committee be accepted and the committee be continued. 

Voted unanimously by a voice vote, that the sum of 
$35,000.00 be and hereby is appropriated from available 
cash in the Treasury for the purpose of obtaining prelimin- 
ary plans, detailed plans and specifications for additional 
school facilities to be located at the High School site ad- 
jacent to the existing school; and further that said School 
Facilities Committee be and hereby is authorized to act on

Ainslie, Catherine D. Noonan, Mary Fieri, Barbara Wil- 
liams and Margaret C. Hernan. 

At 8:15 P.M. the Moderator ascertained from the 
Checkers that a quorum was present and the meeting was 
called to order. The Town Clerk proceeded to read the call 
of the meeting.

deleting the same in their entirety and substituting therefor 
anew zoning by-law as set forth in the Warrant for the Spe- 
cial Town Meeting on November 9, 1965, and a new zoning 
map entitled "Zoning District Map of the Town of Cohasset, 
Massachusetts", dated October 1, 1965, enclosed with said 
Warrant, copies of which have been filed with the Town 
Clerk. 

Mr. Leggatt reported favorably for the Advisory 
Board . 



34 



Moderator Robert B . James proceeded to go through 
the by-law section by section and any questions were answered 
by the proponents . 

The Moderator then called fox a hand vote . 

Yes, 361: No, 186. Atwothirdsmajority was neces- 
sary and the vote fell short by 3 votes. 

A motion was made for reconsideration. 

The yes and no vote was in doubt and the moderator 
called for a hand vote. Those in favor was Yes, 363, No, 
182. 

A discussion followed after which the Moderator 
called for a hand bote on the main motion. 

Yes, 382; No, 213. The motion did not carry the 
two thirds vote necessary to pass. 

Article 2. To see if the Town will vote to clarify 
Section 2D of the Zoning By-Law by adding thereto the fol- 
lowing sentence: 

"The demolition of a seasonal hotel and the reconstruction 
thereof as an apartment hotel for year-round occupancy shall 
be deemed to be a continuation of the previous use, provided 
that the height and bulk of the new building (including roofed 
porches, if any) shall not exceed the height and bulk of the old 
building (including roofed porches). " 

TO THE CITIZENS OF COHASSET: 

In accordance with Chapter 40A Section 6 of the Gen- 
eral Laws, the Planning Board held a public hearing on the 
evening of November 4th, 1965, for the purpose of consid- 
ering the amendment proposed to the Zoning By-Law under 
Article 2 of the Warrant for the Town Meeting of November 
9, 1965, and further submits this report thereon. 

Mr. Burnham, the sponsor of this article presented 
his views in favor and there followed favorable comments by 
several neighbors nad others. When the opportunity came 
for those opposed to express themselves, two speakers had 
questions but did not speak against the proposed amendment. 
Ashowof hands indicated approximately 34 in favor and none 
opposed. 



35 



The Planning Board feels that as this proposed amend- 
ment can only apply to the area now covered by the Black 
Rock House, that here the proposed modern construction 
would not be unsightly, that the need for the proposed apart- 
ment hotel does exist, and that a substantial tax revenue 
without significant increases in municipal services would 
result, therefore the proposed amendment should be acted 
on favorably. 

Respectfully submitted. 

The Cohasset Planning Board 
Albert Haberstroh, Chairman 

Voted by a hand vote, that the Town vote to clarify 
Section 2D of the Zoning By-Law by adding thereto the fol- 
lowing sentence: 

"The demolition of a seasonal hotel and the recon- 
struction thereof as an apartment hotel for year-round oc- 
cupancy shall be deemed to be a continuation of the previous 
use, provided that the height and bulk of the new building 
(including roofed porches, if any) shall not exceed the height 
and bulk of the old building (including roofed porches). " 

Yes, 345; No, 83. 

Voted unanimously by a voice vote at 10:50 P.M. 
that this meeting be dissolved. 

Charles A. Marks, Town Clerk

and 4200' of 10" and 12" pipe was laid. Two and one -half 
miles of Mix-in-Place was laid in various sections of Town. 
This work will continue . 

In a period of ten years, the Department has in- 
stalled 245 catch basins, laid 24,880' of drain pipe, and 
resurfaced 24 miles of streets. 

New street signs were installed, repaired, and 
painted. Street painting was extended this year, and will 
continue. 

Chapter 90 construction and maintenance funds were 
applied for this year. The construction funds will be used 
on Forest Avenue, and the maintenance money will be used 
on streets approved by the state for such aid. 

The town will receive $23,045.28 which has been 
made available by the Legislature from the proceeds of the 
bond issue, chapter 679 acts of 1965. Two-thirds of this 
money can be used this year and will be applied to Forest 
Avenue. Reconstruction of a 2,000' section from Forest 
Notch to Wheelwright Park will be advertised by the DPW 
in the spring. 

All the articles assigned to the department were 
completed. In closing, I would like to recommend the town 
purchase a street sweeper. This machine could be used for 
a period of eight months, and would give the town a service 
which cannot be duplicated by the present system. 

I wish to thank the Town Officials, the citizens of 
Cohasset, and the men on the Highway Department who have 
assisted me through the year.

1965 SCHOOL COMMITTEE REPORT 

To meet the demands of coming years for more 
skills and knowledge, Cohasset Schools strive to educate 
each student to his maximum capacity. Believing high 
standards are supported by our citizens and ever mindful 
of the greater cost of excellence in education, this School 
Committee seeks to obtain full value for every dollar spent. 

Nevertheless, it is frustrating to find that percentage 
increases of total expenditures continue to rise faster than 
pupil enrollments. Furthermore, the General Court con- 
tinues to raise minimum pay for teachers ($5000 effective 
September 1965) without providing tax relief for local real 
estate nor even adopting educational reforms recommended 
by the Willis -Harrington Report. 

The most significant and timely change during 1965 
was the approval by the Congress and President Johnson 
of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act known as 
Public Law 89-10. Thus, the Federal Government stepped 
in to support education at all levels, whereas, heretofor 
payments were made only on account of students whose 



56 



parents are employed in National Defense (PL-874) and 
only for certain specific subjects (Guidance, Science, For- 
eign Language) provided by the National Defense Education 
Act (PL-864). 

Under Title ni of PL 89-10 this committee gave ap- 
proval to join the towns of Hull, Hanover, Marshfield, 
Plymouth-Carver, Scituate and Duxbury in a proposal seek- 
ing the creation of a regional education research and de- 
velopment center known as "Project Lighthouse." This 
South Shore Schools Systems Center could receive a grant 
for use in providing programs and improved educational 
opportunities that no one town could afford. 

The projected need for additional secondary facilities 
for the fall of 1967 was passed on to the School Facilities 
Committee. Educational specifications for a separate Junior 
High School and additional space at the present High School 
were approved for further study. 

After receiving reports from both the school adminis- 
tration and the architect, Mr. Richard Rosane, this com- 
mittee approved as educationally sound and economical 
additions to be attached to the high school. 

The ratio system of pay for teachers, adopted in the 
1965 budget, went into effect in September with a minimum 
salary of $5100. The relatively low turnover in overall 
teaching staff attests to the attractiveness of this plan which 
will be continued in 1966 with a minimum of $5300, 

We are sure to be joined by past members in ex- 
pressing appreciation to Mr. Osborne F. Ingram for his 
wise guidance during 12 years as a member of this com- 
mittee and our chairman for 11 years. 

As ever, we are grateful to Superintendent William 
Ripley, Jr. for his enthusiasm, common sense and pro- 
fessional skill in providing the vital leadership for our 
schools.

REPORT OF THE SUPERINTENDENT OF SCHOOLS 

Currently in the educational world there are many ex- 
perimental pro grams and innovations being tried and tested. 
Therefore I have encouraged our staff members to become 
acquainted with these theories and techniques and to eval- 
uate, adopt, and adapt those methods and materials which 
would best serve our needs. Staff members have attended 
national, regional and state institutes, workshops, and 
lectures during the past year. With the assistance of the 
South Shore Mental Health Clinic, a half day institute on 
Mental Health was held within this school system. In 1965 
the teachers have taken a total of 54 courses in their re- 
spective fields at several institutions. Consequently I 
believe that our staff has shown that individually they are 
concerned with keeping up-to-date in todays s fast moving 
educational world. Presently the primary school is espec- 
ially interested in studying the less rigid grade line restric- 
tions to curriculum development and organization. At Deer 
Hill a continued effort has been made for refining the group- 
ing methods in the skill subjects. Through team teaching, 
the High School has made an attempt to revitalize the teaching 
of United States History. More details of these and other 
activities in curriculum development were presented in the 
revived publication of 'Tour Cohasset Schools" in its fall 
issue. 

The graduating class numbering 117 was the largest 
in the schooPs history. Of these 64 entered four year 
colleges or universities; 7 entered two year colleges; and 
14 enrolled at technical or specialized schools. 

I should like to express my appreciation for the fine 
quality of administration provided by the principals of our 
schools, Mrs, O'Quin completed 9 years of able adminis- 
tration and leadership in the Joseph Osgood School. At her 
request, Mrs. O'Quin has been assigned to teach the first 
grade. Mr. Giuliano, principal of the Cohasset High School, 
deserves commendation for his energetic leadership of that 
school. Mr. Creamer continues to display his sound judg- 
ment with the intermediate pupils at Deer Hill. Last Sep- 
tember Mrs. Catherine Mulcahy efficiently assumed admin- 
istrative duties at the Joseph Osgood School. Also I extend 



58 



my appreciation for the years of tireless service rendered 
by Mrs . Elinor Kennedy who first taught elementary pupils 
in Cohasset in 1924, In June Mrs. Kennedy retired after 
many years of fine teaching. 

Certainly the citizens of Cohasset owe a debt of grat- 
itude to Mr. Osborne F. Ingram for his 11 years as Chair- 
man of the Cohasset School Committee . When Mr . Ingram^s 
term expired last March, he was not a candidate for re- 
election. Mr. Ingram *s careful and conscientious guidance 
and advice will be missed. 

It has been gratifying to work with the dedicated people 
who are members of the Cohasset School Committee. For 
their patience and understanding I am most grateful . 

Respectfully submitted, 

WILLIAM RIPLEY, JR. 
Superintendent of Schools

REPORT OF THE SCHOOL DENTIST 

To the Board of Health 
Cohasset, Massachusetts 

Gentlemen: 

The following report of dental operations at the 
Joseph Osgood and Deer Hill School Dental clinics is sub- 
mitted for the period from January 1, 1965 to December 31, 
1965. 

Restorations 

Silver Amalgrams (with and without base) 417 

Synthetic Porcelain 12 

Anodyne 15 

Red Copper Cement 5 

Extractions 

Deciduous Teeth 95 

Permanent Teeth . None 

Prophylactic treatments 76 

Examinations without treatment (at chair) 92 

Weekly clinics at both schools functioned during the 
school year, augumented with chair^side instruction, lectures 
in the classrooms, instructional movies and film strips. 
We try in a small way to impart a bit of oral health instruc- 
tion into the busy schedule of our modern youth, and it is 
gratifying to note that the general oral health of the children 
has vastly improved during the past twenty -five years . 

I would like to express my appreciation to Mrs. 
Gormley and the School Staff for their many favors through- 
out the school year. 

Respectfully submitted, 

WILLIAM G. MATTESON, D.M.D.

REPORT OF THE SOUTH SHORE REGIONAL 
SCHOOL DISTRICT COMMITTEE 

This has been a most gratifying year. June 1965 
marked the end of our third school year and the graduation 
of our first three year class o For this class the number of 
job opportunities far exceeded the number of graduates and 
the pay offered was , therefore, higher than ever. Industry 
is becoming aware of the quality of our product. 

In September 1965 we began our fourth school year 
with 246 pupils enrolled in the day school and 130 in the 
evening trade extension courses. The latter courses are 
offered to upgrade the tradesmen of the area and the pro- 
gram has been well received. 

It is our hope that more parents will come to realize 
the splendid opportunities for training and placement offered 
by this school . The fact that many of the students come from 
non-regional communities indicates that neighboring towns 
are well aware of the schooPs contribution to the area. The 
new regional vocational schools soon to be opened in the 
Brockton and Canton areas are an indication of widespread 
public recognition of the value of vocational training. 

As has been our policy in the past, the Advisory 
Boards and Finance Committees of all regional towns were 
invited to attend the School Committee budget meetings and 
to participate in the discussions. This has been a most ef- 
fective arrangement since it allows active participation in 
the discussions and decisions being made. 

A relatively new activity of the school which probably 
has not come to the attention of many residents is the re- 
training of chronically unemployed persons. This activity 
has been conducted for the Division of Employment Security 
and is paid for entirely by the Federal Government. A sub- 
stantial benefit to the school district is the considerable 
amount of equipment supplied by the Federal Government. 
All of this equipment becomes the property of the school 
district when the courses are completed. This program 
has been most successful. During the past year, seventy 
persons have been enrolled in three courses. All have 



67 



finished the courses and have found steady employment. 

A new activity which is being explored with the school 
Superintendents of the six member towns is some type of 
limited vocational manipulative training for the academically 
non-gifted students . Just what form this training will take 
can not be predicted at this time, but it is being given much 
attention both at the federal and the state level and hope- 
fully will develop into a worthwhile project. The programs 
will be financed almost entirely by federal or state money. 

We look forward to the years ahead, and to con- 
tinued service to our youth and to our industry. 

JOHN A. GEARY 

Cohasset Representative 
South Shore Regional School 
District Committee 



SCHOOL FACILITIES REPORT - 1965 

During the past year the School Facilities Committee 
has geen engaged in a study of enrollment projections, 
meetings with the School Building Assistance Commission 
and the interviewing and selection of architects. 

After careful consideration of all of the school build- 
ing needs and methods of solving them and having obtained 
the approval of the School Committee, it has been decided 
to recommend to the Town that additions be made to the 
present Junior -Senior High School on Pond Street as the 
best solution to the building needs at this level from an 
educational as well as an economical point of view. To 
accomplish this it will be necessary to obtain 16 acres of 
land adjacent to the present property. 

The firm of Drummey, Rosane, Anderson, 2276 
Washington Street, Newton Lower Falls, were selected as 
architects and engineers. 

HARRY H. REED, JR., Chairman

REPORT OF THE COHASSET INCINERATOR COMMITTEE 

Chapter 599 of the Acts of 1960 was entitled as fol- 
lows: 

AN ACT PROVIDING FOR THE INCINERA- 
TION OF CERTAIN REFUSE AND GARBAGE 
COLLECTED IN THE TOWNS OF COHASSET , 
HINGHAM, HULL AND WEYMOUTH OR ANY 
TWO OR MORE CONTIGUOUS TOWNS OF 
SAID GROUP AND CREATING THE SOUTH 
SHORE INCINERATOR AUTHORITY AND 
DEFINING ITS POWER AND DUTIES 

This was enabling legislation permitting the towns 
referred to therein to proceed jointly with the establishment 
of a South Shore Incinerator Authority if they so desired. 
The last section of this Act reads as follows: 

'This Act shall take full effect only upon its 
acceptance by the Towns of Cohasset, Hing- 
ham, Hull and Weymouth, or any two or more 
contiguous towns of said group, by the vote 
of a majority of the town meeting members 
or voters, as the case may be, present and 
voting thereon at an annual or special town 
meeting called for the purpose in each of 
said towns and upon the filing of certifi- 
cates of such acceptances with the State 
Secretary; provided, that such acceptances 
and filing occur before June 1, 1963. '' 

Since this enabling legislation has expired, no such 
j oint venture can now be entered into . Further , the develop - 
ments in the several towns indicate that there is not much 
likelihood of a demand for renewal of such enabling legis- 
lation, Weymouth has built its own incinerator which is 
now in operation. Hingham has closed its old dump and has 
established a new dimip in which the so-called sanitary land 
fill procedures are being followed . Hingham's Incinerator 
Committee has been disbanded. Hull has for the present 
decided to continue with its present dump. HulPs Inciner- 
ator Committee has been disbanded. Scituate, the only 



69 



other town adjoining Cohasset, is continuing the operation 
of its two dumps and at present has no interest in inciner- 
ation. 

Thus it is apparent that so long as the present pro- 
cedures are continued in Hingham, Hull and Scituate, the 
incineration problem is not likely to arise in Cohasset. 

Your Committee reminds the Town that there is on 
file in the Town Clerk's office a paper entitled ' 'Report on 
Incineration, Cohasset and Hull" prepared in January 1962 
by the Boston engineering firm of Fay, Spofford & Thorn- 
dike, InCo giving an estimate of what incineration would 
costshouldanincinerator be jointly established by Cohasset 
and Hull. If the incineration question should arise in the 
future, this report would serve as a good starting point for 
further investigations. 

The facts outlined indicate that the Cohasset Incin- 
erator Committee should be discharged, and the Committee 
so requests.

REPORT OF THE COHASSET PUBLIC 
SEWERAGE SYSTEM STUDY COMMITTEE 



The Study Committee reports the following developments 
in 1965. 

(1) At the Town election March 13 the voters approved, 
by the decisive margin of 978 to 740, acceptance of enabling 
legislation authorizing the Town of Cohasset to construct 
and operate a system or systems of sewerage and sewage 
disposal. (Chapter 65 of the Acts of 1962, as amended by 
Chapter 104 of the Acts of 1964). 

(2) Detailed plans and specifications including detailed 
cost estimates were completed by the engineering firm of 
Fay, Spofford and Thorndike and delivered to the Study 
Committee. These plans are in accordance with previous 
descriptions except that the building housing pumps and 
control equipment is placed on Town property behind the 
Water Department building on Elm Street, instead of ad- 
jacent to the treatment works in Jacobus Meadow. The area 
covered is unchanged, with 1.3 miles of sewer mains and 
about 125 connections serving Cohasset village. Elm Street, 
Elm Court and much of the Harbor area (see 1964 map). 
Design of sewer main sizes and treatment plant has been 
carried out to provide for economical expansion of the sys- 
tem to include all areas of the Town, if the Town wants ex- 
pansion and votes the money. Total cost of the system, 
including engineering supervision, contingency and land 
costs is now estimated to be $484,000, but this would be 
subjecttoa reduction of $18 7, 000 by application for Federal 
grants now available. The increase in estimate above the 
$405, 000 figure of 1964 is due partly to rising construction 
costs and partly to specification of some improved equip- 
ment. 

(3) Having authorized final payment to the engineers, the 
Study Committee gives the following recapitulation of ex- 
penditures authorized by the Town at various times for 
planning, investigation and reports: 



72 



$ 1,000 under article 30, 1960 Town Meeting 

500 under article 25, 1961 Town Meeting 

2,000 under article 35, 1962 Town Meeting 

20,800 under article 33, 1963 Town Meeting 

$24,300 Total expenditures authorized and made 
through December 31, 1965 

(4) Several acts have been passed by Congress in 1965 
providing grants in connection with public sewerage sys- 
tems or amending previous acts to liberalize grants. The 
Study Committee has obtained information and ascertained 
that some of these grants can only be used by communities 
in economically distressed areas or areas of high unemploy- 
ment. Cohasset does not qualify for such grants. However, 
public law 8 9-1 17 provides 50 per cent grants for construc- 
tion of public sewerage system (excluding treatment plant) 
and water system facilities. From the wording of the law 
it appears that Cohasset would be eligible to apply for and 
receive such a grant. This law will be administered by the 
new Department of Housing and Urban Development. Eligi- 
bility requirements and application procedures have not yet 
been worked out at the time of writing this report. How- 
ever, the Study Committee has written to the Housing and 
Home Finance Agency describing the status of the system 
planned for Cohasset and requesting information on appli- 
cation procedures and eligibility requirements when they 
are available. The Study Committee feels that a grant of 
this sort would be an extremely strong incentive for the 
Town to proceed as rapidly as possible with construction. 
The estimate of the cost of street sewer mains is $224,000. 
A grant of 50 per cent would save the town $112, 000 of this 
cost. If the balance is shared in the proportion of two- 
thirds by the abutters and one -third by the town, as recom- 
mended by the Advisory Committee in 1964, the necessary 
assessment and connection fees would be very close to those 
described in 1964. An assessment of $4 .00 per front foot 
plus one cent per square foot of area to a maximum depth 
of 200 feet would be adequate, in conjimction with a street 
connection fee of approximately $165. The average assess- 
ment for the properties served by the system recommended 
on this method of assessment would be $430. The total 
assessment and connection fee could be amortized on a long- 
term basis (for example, twenty years) through arrange- 
ments that will be set up by the Sewer Commissioners. 



73 



(5) Because of the previous developments the Study Com- 
mittee voted to present to the Town again in March 1966 
articles providing for authorization and funds to construct 
the recommended sewerage system. This is essentially 
the same system recommended in 1964 and approved by the 
Advisory Committee at that time. Although the total cost 
is higher than in 1964, the net cost to the Town would be 
lower, withthe Federal grant now available for construction 
of sewer mains . Each year of delay means an increase in 
construction costs until the time comes when delay is no 
longer possible. The cost of a well -designed new system 
for a four -bedroom house or repair of a difficult problem 
on an existing system often reaches a figure of $1, 000, and 
in many cases may exceed this. Such costs, as well as the 
cost of pumping out septic tanks and cesspools must be kept 
in mind in weighing the costs of a public sewerage system, 
which provides the only satisfactory permanent way of dis- 
posing of sewage. Approximately half of Massachusetts 
towns with a population between 5,000 and 10,000 have a 
public sewerage system. Towns with population over 10, 000 
have systems, virtually without exception. Hingham, Scit- 
uate, and Rockland are building public sewerage systems. 
Cohas set will be in a very backward and disadvantaged posi- 
tion in comparison with other towns of its size and other 
towns nearby if a start is not made soon. 

(6) An addition is being planned for the Cohasset High 
School -Junior High School complex. The older part of the 
sewage disposal system at the high school has given trouble 
in the past, is not working properly now, and will have to 
be completely replaced. The newer part of the system will 
also have to be replaced because of location of part of the 
new building in its area. The Town is thus faced with con- 
struction of a large and expensive individual sewage disposal 
system to serve existing buildings with the new additions. 
If the Town approves construction of the recommended sew- 
erage system the treatment plant would have the capacity 
to take care of the waste from the high school. The engi- 
neers have estimated that a line from the high school down 
Pleasant Street to Cushing Road, along Cushing Road and 
then across to Jacob's Meadow and the treatment plant could 
be built for approximately $155, 000, including engineering 



74 



fees and contingencies. The Study Committee is strongly 
of the opinion it would make much better sense for the town 
to start the recommended sewage system and then start 
immediate plans for construction as soon as possible of the 
line from the high school. The saving of construction cost 
of a very extensive system at the high school could very 
well offset a large part of the town^s share of a sewer main 
from the high school to the treatment plant. Comparative 
cost figures will be presented at Town Meeting, with the 
cooperation of the School Facilities Committee.

REPORT OF THE BOARD OF PUBLIC WELFARE 

TheDepartmentprocessed 57 applications in 1965, of 
which 43 were approved for assistance . A total of 121 cases 
were aided - 124 adults and 69 children. 86 cases are con- 
tinued into 1966, 

$162, 963.06 was expended in the 4 Federal partici- 
pating categories; 68,8% of this amount was spent for 
persons 65 years of age and older. State and Federal reim- 
bursement was 77. 7% for these categories. $4, 593.49 was 
expended for General Relief - 20% was reimbursed by the 
State. 

The increase in expenditure in 1965 is largely due to 
the advance in the cost of hospitalization and other medical 
services. An increase in the LTA item in the OAA pro- 
gram, effective 11-1-65, was the only budgetary increase.

CASEWORK REPORT 

An excellent working relationship has existed between 
the Welfare Office and Mrs. Wright, Caseworker. Fourteen 
(14) cases have been carried jointly, with problems such as 
marital difficulties, economic strain, budgetary planning, 
alcoholism and personality adjustment, requiring co- 
operative treatment. Three (3) cases will require continued 
help in 1966, A joint effort was also made in determining 
eligible children for Operation Headstart, held in Scituate 
during the summer. 

We are grateful to Mrs . Oliver for her understanding 
and constructive support in a variety of situations.

REPORT OF THE BOARD OF 
WATER COMMISSIONERS 

As a result of the vote of the Town meeting, author- 
izing a $180,000 bond issue, your Water Department has 
constructed a two million gallon standpipe, in which to store 
water in a clean and sanitary method » This will also in- 
crease the pressure throughout the entire system. 

We have also laid approximately six thousand feet 
of twelve inch water main along route 3-A, from King Street 
to Beechwood Street. 

There is still a small distance to go to complete the 
project. This will help greatly the flow of water for fire 
protection, as is required by the Fire Insurance Rating 
Association. 

The drought has caused great concern to the Water 
Department and a continuing search for water must be main- 
tained . 

The Water Department is greatly interested in the 
development of Aaron River , as a potential source of water, 
and feel that a request for a Chapter 91 project should be 
made. The greater portion of this water should be made to 
flow directly into Lily Pond, instead of flowing out to the 
ocean. 

The Massachusetts Department of Public Works has 
made a preliminary survey of this project, and we are now 
waiting for the report of the survey. 

The Water Commissioners will strive to make better- 
ments and improve the system within our earning capacity.

REPORT OF THE LIBRARIAN OF THE 
PAUL PRATT MEMORIAL LIBRARY 

During the year 1965 the Library Staff completed 
its "resettlement program" - the task of moving books, 
etc. , and spreading out into our new addition. We found 
that the addition now supplies ample space for the children, 
an adequate reference room and study hall and a reading, 
browsing room for the adults. The arrangement has worked 
out even better than anticipated. 

Various meetings and Conferences have been at- 
tended duringtheyear - the Massachusetts Library Associ- 
ation at Provincetown, the New England Library Association 

82 



at Portsmouth, New Hampshire, and the Old Colony Library 
Association. I have also attended meetings of the Library 
Administrators Association of Greater Boston and kept in 
touch with the progress of the formation of the Eastern 
Region. The completion of this Regional setup has been 
held up by a legal formality concerning the Boston Public 
Library. Progress has been made, notably the ability to 
borrow freely from the Boston Public Library and we are 
confident the remaining problems will be settled shortly. 

Mrs. Evelyn Wood, the Children's Librarian, has 
attended round table discussions at neighboring Libraries 
concerning Children's Books and Services. She also con- 
ducts the Children's Story Hour held each Saturday morning 
at 10:30. 

In September we had a meeting of representatives 
from the Schools , School Committee and the Parent Teach- 
er's Association with the Library Directors and Trustees. 
This meetingwas held to discuss ways and means of obtain- 
ing better cooperation between the School faculty , Librarians 
and Public Librarians. 

A Great Book Group meets at the Library on the 
first and third Thursday of each month. This Group is 
sponsored by the Library and conducted by Mrs. Richard 
A. Welch. 

We have had continuous Art Exhibits throughout the 
year by courtesy of the South Shore Art Center and private 
individuals . 

Statistics for the year are as follows: 

New Registrations 476 

Registrations withdrawn 358 

Number of books added 1734 

Number of books withdrawn 1718

REPORT OF THE COHASSET 
CONSERVATION COMMISSION 

The work of the Conservation Commission has been 
varied in 1965. Some of the more interesting and important 
activities in which we were involved are as follows: 

The preservation of marshland for conservation 
purposes, that is, to provide a food source for our coastal 
fisheries, rest areas for our visiting waterfowl and other 
bird life, and a source of natural beauty and enjoyment to 
our townspeople, is one of the major concerns of the Con- 
servation Commission. Towards this end we have been 
studying these areas inCohasset with a view to making sure 
they remain in their natural state. The Commission was 
granted conservation easements through the generosity of 
Mrs. E. B. Boardman and Mrs. William Cox on marshland 
owned by them on Howard Gleason Road off Atlantic Avenue » 
Commission members have talked with other owners of 
marshland in the vicinity and it is probable that additional 
conservation easements will be granted here in the near 
future. Under an easement of this type, the owner retains 
possession of the property but agrees to restrict its use so 
that there will be no change in the natural state of the land 
by filling, excavating or dumping and that no building or 
structure will be erected on it. Mr. Charles L. Smith was 
made an associate member of the Commission in 1965. He 
will be primarily concerned with working with other mem- 
bers of the Commission to acquire or control by easement 
marshland in the Gulf area. Our Commission is working 
closely with the Scituate Conservation Commission in this 
area of mutual interest. 

The Commission was responsible for having the 
Norfolk County Conservation District make a survey of Ellms 
Meadow, an area of eleven acres off Spring Street and 
Cushing Road consisting of wooded land and a small pond, 
as well as meadow. The purpose of the survey was to deter- 
mine what steps could be taken to improve the area from a 
conservation and recreation point of view without disturbing 
the activities of the Water Department, which has juris- 
diction over the land. An excellent report was received 
from the Conservation District, at no cost to the town, in 



85 



which suggestions and recommendations were made to 
achieve the desired results. A meeting will be held early 
in 1966 with interested town committees and private groups 
participating to plan a definite program to carry out the 
recommendations given in the report. 

The Commission continued to work closely with the 
Board of Selectmen to see that the Zoning Bvlaw (Section 4 
Paragraph E) which concerns filling of marshlands , etc . , was 
enforced. For the most part, persons undertaking filling 
activity, so informed by the Selectmen, made application 
for a permit to the Board of Appeals and in every case a 
permit was granted. It is interesting to note that at some 
hearings before the Board of Appeals information was 
brought out that was of real benefit to the applicant by way 
of abetter understanding of how drainage should be handled 
on his land and what the effect of what he was doing, in re- 
gard to filling, had on the adjoining land. 

Members of the Commission have attended meetings 
of other town committees during the year and plan to do this 
on a regular basis in the coming year. We think that there 
is not enough exchange of ideas between the various official 
groups within the town government system in Cohasset and 
hope that the extra time Commission members spend on 
this will be rewarding. 

Aprojectwe started in 1965 and plan to devote more 
time to in coming years is to work closely with the Cohasset 
Schools to help interest our young people in conservation. 
Interesting speakers at school assemblies, encouraging 
conservation projects at the Science Fair, providing the 
school librarian with books and descriptive material on con- 
servation, and making use of our "natural laboratories" 
such as could exist at Ellms Meadow and other areas in 
town, are some of the ways of accomplishing this goal. 

We are sorry to report the resignation in 1965 of

SOUTH SHORE MOSQUITO CONTROL PROJECT 

To the Citizens of the Town of Cohasset: 

Submitted herewith is the report of the South Shore 
Mosquito Control Project's activities in the Town of Cohasset 
for the year ending October 31, 1965. 

The Town of Cohasset appropriated $4200 for mos- 
quito control in 1965. Alongwiththis $800 was appropriated 
for salt marsh maintenance. This was used for mosquito 
control in the Town of Cohasset by the South Shore Mosquito 
Control Project, a cooperative effort under General Laws, 
Chapter 252, embracing the City of Quincy and the Towns 
of Braintree, Cohasset, Duxbury, Hingham, Hull, Marsh- 
field, Norwell, Scituate and Weymouth, a total of 172.21 
square miles, servicing a population of over 222,824. 

The project operates year round, continuing to base 
its operations on a three phase program; Permanent Control, 
the elimination of mosquito breeding sites by proper water 
management; Preventive Control, the elimination of mos- 
quito larvae by spraying or dusting breeding sites; Adult 
Control, the elimination of the flying mosquitoes by space 
spraying or fogging. 

With this as the basic plan the following was accom- 
plished in the Town of Cohasset this year. 

PERMANENT CONTROL 

2300 feet of drainage were reclaimed and 300 feet of 
new drainage ditch were trenched to reduce water from be- 
coming stagnant enough to produce mosquitoes. 

PREVENTIVE CONTROL 

275 acres of small isolated woodland swamp were 
prehatch treated with dust upon ice in winter months to pre- 
vent the development of the mosquito eggs. 1053 acres of 
larger swamp areas were larval treated in the spring of the 
year by air from a helicopter aircraft to control mosquitoes 
of the early season. 



87 



Duringthe summer seas on many wet areas had to be 
checked for their larval and pupal content. Areas like the 
salt marsh had to be rechecked as much as three and four 
times. Wherever mosquito larvae and pupae were found 
the conditions were remedied by spraying or removing the 
water container. 611 gallons of insecticide were applied 
for this larval/pupal control. 

Catchbasins, a source of a great number of mosquito 
larvae, may have to be treated as often as three times a 
season, depending on wet or dry season. It was necessary 
to treat 150 basins in the Town of Cohasset this year. 

ADULT CONTROL 

Spray for adult mosquitoes becomes necessary when 
complaints are received of large numbers of mosquitoes 
moving into an area. These mosquitoes usually migrate 
from uncontrolled areas outside of the project's boundaries, 
or come from man-created conditions around homes where 
any type of container containing water will breed the culex 
or house mosquito. The project received 1027 calls last 
season. Action in some form was taken on all. 

In the Town of Cohasset 1187 gallons of insecticide 
were space sprayed for adult mosquitoes with hydraulic 
sprayer and mist blower. 

When weather and other conditions were favorable 
an insecticidal thermal fogger was used. 15 gallons of 
insecticide and oil in a fog were applied at the rate of 4-1/2 
gallons to the acre in the Town of Cohasset. 

INSECTICIDES 

The insecticides used by the South Shore Mosquito 
Control Project are: 

DDT Dust 

DDT Emulsions 

Malathion Emulsion 

Malathion Miscible in oil, fog 

DiBrom 14 in oil, fog 

Baytex Emulsions, catchbasins 

#2 Oil 



88 



All insecticides are registered and are labelled for 
use in mosquito control. They are formulated and applied 
in accord with and at no greater amounts than their labels 
recommend to be proper for mosquito control operations. 

The project wishes to acknowledge the help received 
from officials and departments of the towns and city and 
sincerely hopes that benefits derived by these departments 
as a result of this cooperation are as great as those derived 
by the project. 

The main purpose of this project is to "Control." 
This means to prevent large populations of mosquitoes from 
emerging from their breeding sites to infest communities, 
not by any means to completely eradicate the mosquitoes. 
Yet the number of calls received by the project this past 
season (1027) a comparatively low breeding year, would 
indicate that many of the townspeople by their calls have 
either lost sight of this fact or do not understand the func- 
tions of a control project. 

Many of the calls were for a personalized type of 
backyard adult spray or a routine tj^e neighborhood spray 
where no great mosquito problem exists. This type of oper- 
ation is wrong for many reasons, a few being: 

It is wasteful in both material and labor, 

it takes personnel away from more practical work, 

and most important, the unnecessary use of insect- 
icides can endanger the environment. 

In the future request calls shall be more scrutinized. 
Before insecticides are to be used there shall be a mosquito 
problem. 



REPORT OF TREE WARDEN - 1965 

Care of the shade trees of the town this past year 
was carried on in a routine manner. Several trees in a 
dangerous condition were cut down as a safety measure. 
Roadside brush was cleared in several areas, particularly 
Pond Street, to promote safety. Considerable pruning of 



89 



large trees was done with the help of a Skyworker. The 
Brockton Edison Company cooperated in clearing deadwood 
and overhanging branches over wires . 

Eighteen (18) trees were planted in various places 
about town where needed. Vandalism has made it necessary 
to replant trees in several places . 

Continued drought has made it necessary to water 
newly planted trees to keep them alive and has damaged 
large trees growing under unfavorable conditions. 

The Public Shade Trees of the town are now in fairly 
good condition, but many are in danger of damage by soil com- 
paction caused by parking of cars. Curbing, especially on Elm 
Street, would make it possible to plant more young trees. 

With thanks to all officials and citizens who by their 
comments have assisted me in my work. 

Respectfully submitted, 

HOWARD BATES, Tree Warden 



REPORT OF MOTH SUPERINTENDENT - 1965 

Insect damage and Dutch Elm Disease have been 
comparatively light this past year. 

Cankerworms again appeared in the Forest Avenue- 
Golf Club area, but use of the Mist Blower only was neces- 
sary to control them. 

Elms were sprayed with Thiodan and Aramite to 
control elm leaf beetles , aphids , and mites with very good 
results . 

Cankerworms and other chewing and noxious pests 
were very well controlled by the use of Sevin, a new and 
comparatively safe insecticide. 



90 



POISON IVY CONTROL 

Poison Ivy Control was continued with the use of 
Ester on Brush Killer, and very little Poison Ivy is to be 
found in exposed places . 

DUTCH ELM DISEASE 

Methoxychlor, a comparatively safe insecticide to 
humans and wildlife , was used as a dormant spray to all elm 
trees that could be reached by truck. 

The continued program for Dutch Elm Disease Con- 
trol, consistingof a dormant spray and a sanitation program 
has cutD . E . D . losses to the lowest point in years , 36 . Only 
seven (7) of these could be considered public shade trees, 
and none were found on the Common or on adjacent streets. 

All free falling diseased trees have been cut, and 
the remaining 18 to be topped will be removed by early 
spring. All citizens noticing sudden wilting or yellowing of 
elm leaves in June and July, the symptoms of Dutch Elm 
Disease, are urged to call the Moth Superintendent. 

Respectfully submitted , 

HOWARD BATES 
Moth Superintendent 



CIVIL DEFENSE REPORT 

I herewith submit the Civil Defense Report for the 
year ending December 31, 1965. 

The additional 200 bed hospital is now complete. 
This gives the Town a 400 bed hospital complete with emer- 
gency medical supplies. 

All medical supplies were inventoried, replaced and 
added to where necessary. 

The Town warning system was inspected periodically 
during the year. One new radio (receiver -transmitter) was 
added to our commimications system. 



91 



Regular monthly radio drills are held in conjunction 
with Sector 2D Headquarters. 

The two exercises conducted statewide to test the 
ability of local communities to receive a warning notice 
were received over the teletype facilities in our Police 
Headquarters allowing us to reply promptly to them. These 
messages also are received over a receiver located in the 
Fire Station and are broadcast by the State Police. 

These methods of communication and the radios we 
have, we believe, give us a good communication coverage. 

Lists of all doctors and nurses who live in the Town 
are currently being up-dated. 

Programpapers and staffing reports have been pre- 
pared, filed and approved as required. 

It is expected that a course for school teachers will 
be held early in 1966 at the Bridgewater State College in 
"Personal and Family Survival". This will be a 15 hour 
course. Those completing the course will be entitled to 
serve as an Instructor in their local communities . 

HARRY H, REED, JR„ , Director 

REPORT OF POLICE DEPARTMENT 

I wish to express the department's and my personal 
appreciation to you, and all civic organizations for your 
support during the past year. 

We are deeply indebted to the residents of Cohasset 
for their continuing acceptance of fair, impartial and cour- 
teous enforcement of the laws , and the respect shown the 
police officers by the citizens generally is indeed gratifying. 

The assistance and cooperation of the press, all 
town departments and other municipal, county, state and 
federal law enforcement agencies has contributed materially 
to our operation. 



92 



The 1965 Annual Report of the police department is 
herewith submitted. The last quarter of 1965 already in- 
dicates that we will continue to have challenges in our efforts 
to apply a high level of service and protection to the citizens . 

As Chief of Police for the Town of Cohasset, I have 
the honor to present, in compliance with provisions of 

Article 3, Section 3 of the By-Laws, a report of the 
Cohasset Police Department for the year ending December 
31, 1965.

The motorized equipment is generally in good condition and 
capable of performing the work required of it. During the year 
routine maintenance such as changing oil and greasing was done by 
the men on duty. 

To continue the useful life of Engine 3 it is necessary to re- 
build the motor and replace the now leaking water tank. Upon com- 
pletion of this work it should be capable of several more years of 
service. This course of action seems to me to be more sensible 
and economical than early replacement. 

PERSONNEL 

There are presently employed sixteen permanent officers 
and firefighters in the Fire Department. These men are divided 
into three work groups, each commanded by an officer and working 
56 hours per week. The manpower on these three groups is then 
divided again and assigned to Fire Headquarters, North Cohasset 
and Beechwood.

It should be noted that there is a lack of personnel to fill out 
the table of organization listed above. The requirements above are 
the extreme minimum for safe and efficient operation. It should be 
remembered that the Fire Department provides service 24 hours a 
day — 365 days in the year. The purpose of the relief man would 
be to cover vacancies that occur due to vacation, illness, and injury 
and still allow for proper manning. The Fire Alarm Operator 
would maintain coverage of the telephone, radio and fire alarm 
equipment during simultaneous or multiple alarms and make certain 
that Mutual Aid is available for covering our stations. 

Call officers and call firefighters are assigned to the various 
companies as follows:

A call firefighter upon the sounding of an alarm leaves his 
work or home and responds to the fire — this call may come at any 
time of the day or night. The spirit of helping someone in need is 
paramount in their mind and for this reason they deserve the thanks 
and appreciation of the townspeople. The rate of compensation is 
not great but the risks involved are — their dedication and devotion 
to duty are to be commended. 

STATIONS AND EQUIPMENT 

The three fire stations of the department required some 
maintenance work. Naturally the Headquarters building being new 
did not require much more than very minor repair and adjustment. 
It is apleasant feeling to have people come from other communities 
to survey this facility and comment on its beauty and practicability. 
The officers and firefighters of the department maintain not only 
the interior of the fire department's portion of fhe building but also 
the exterior and grounds . All the lawns and shrubbery were trimmed 
and fertilized and all the grass area treated with weed killer and 
top dressed. 

The driveway aprons at the North Cohasset Fire Station and 
the Beechwood Fire Station were rebuilt by the Highway Department 
with paving material . 

The foundation and sills at the rear of the North Cohasset 
Fire Station and Post Office were repaired and put in good order, 
this workwas done under the jurisdiction of the Board of Selectmen. 

The hundreds of tools of the department both large and small 
were checked continually and necessary repairs and adjustments 
made. The greatest portion of this work being done by the fire- 
fighters. Replacements for damaged and overage hose were made, 
to maintain hose that is capable of service it is necessary to make 
continual replacement of over age hose. This discarded hose is 
available for use at the dump, and by the water and hi^way depart- 
ments . 

GENERAL 

All permanent officers and men, plus a group of call fire- 
fighters attended and were certified by the American Red Cross in 
Advanced First Aid. Firefighter Richard M. Conley attended and 
was certified as an instructor by the American Red Cross, this will 
allow the department to have refresher courses and training within 
its own ranks. 



99 



The results of the survey conducted in 1964 by The New 
England Fire Insurance Rating Association have not yet been final- 
ized. They are awaiting completion of the improvements to the 
water distribution system currently under way. When this work is 
complete fire flow tests will be run and the results computed. This 
information will then be presented along with their findings and 
recommendations . 

A continuing training program is underway within the de- 
partment. Review of the basic evolutions and studying and trying 
out new practices is necessary to keep abreast with the changing 
times. Again, this year, several members at their own expense 
attended the Fire Training School conducted by the New Hampshire 
Fire Chiefs' Club. 

All citizens of the Town are urged to obtain a permit for 
fires in the open. This is required by the General Laws of the 
Commonwealth, and may be obtained by calling Fire Headquarters 
each day an open air fire is desired. 

The past year has been the driest in many, many years and 
the fact that the Fire Department responded to fewer grass and brush 
fires under these extreme conditions is testimony to the results ob- 
tained by the citizens of Cohasset cooperating and using care in 
burning in the open. In 1965 the Fire Department issued 1,496 such 
permits . 

RECOMMENDATIONS 

The following recommendations are for your serious con- 
sideration. 

1. the addition of at least two permanent firefighters to the 
department to allow the department to function at a safe and 
efficient minimum strength. 

2 . to consider the adoption of a By-Law requiring the installation 
of a fire detection system in new dwelling construction and 
the installation of sprinklers in mercantile buildings with 
large open floor space. 

APPRECIATION 

In the year 1965 two members of the department who had long 
and faithful service as Call Firefighters passed on. 

Mr. Louis E. Salvador, assigned to Engine 1 and 
Mr. Bernard J. Salvador, assigned to Engine 1 

In concludingthis report I would like to extend to the citizens 
of Cohasset, the Honorable Board of Selectmen, the heads and mem- 
bers of all Town Departments and Committees my sincere thanks 
and appreciation for their cooperation and assistance. 

I would also like to thank the officers and men of the Fire 
Department for their understanding, cooperation and assistance. 
Without these things it would be difficult to carry out the activities 
of the department. 

Respectfully submitted, 

CHARLES PIEPENBRINK 
Chief of Fire Department

TOWN ACCOUNTANT'S REPORT 



I herewith submit my annual report in accordance with Section 
61 of Chapter 41 of the Tercentenary Edition of the General Laws, for 
the year ending December 31, 1965, showing in detail the appropria- 
tions, expenditures, and the receipts from each source of income. 
Also a recapitulation sheet and a balance sheet showing the assets and 
liabilities and trust accounts. 

In accordance with Section 57 of Chapter 41 of the Tercentenary 
Edition of the General Laws, you will find a detailed report of the 
Town's Debt which amounts to $1 , 584 , 000 . 00 with the amount of interest 
due in 1966 of $39,086.25 and principal of $166, 000.00. 

The records of permits and licenses issued by the Selectmen and 
other departments, receiving money for the Town or committing bills 
for collection were examined and checked, the reported payments to 
the Town Collector and Town Treasurer being compared with the Treas- 
urer's recorded receipts, also the Savings bank books and securities 
representing the investment of the several trust funds in the custody of 
the Town Treasurer. 

During the year, the Treasurer's cash balance was proved by 
reconciliation of the bank balances with statements furnished by the 
banks of deposit and by actual count of the cash in the office. 

A complete audit of the books and accounts of the Cohasset 
Water Department was made, the outstanding accounts were listed and 
proved with the respective accounts . 

In closing, I wish to take this opportimity to thank all depart- 
ments for their sincere cooperation this past year.

REPORT OF THE BOARD OF SELECTMEN 



With the exception of a part of the sidewalk on Sohier 
Street, and the new floats at Government Island, the in- 
structions of the Town as set forth in the votes of the March 
Meeting have been carried out by the Board of Selectmen, 

It has been determined by Town Counsel that the 
completion of the Sohier Street project will require a formal 
plan and layout, which will involve a further Town Meeting 
vote. It was found that additional money would be required 
for the construction of the floats desired. This additional 
amount has been made available by action of the Advisory 
Committee, and the work will be completed before spring. 

Engineering studies of the Aaron River have been 
made, and the Board is awaiting a report on the results of 
the studies from the Department of Waterways. Senator 
Weeks and Representative Gates have continued to work 
closely with the Board on this matter, as have the Aaron 
River Committee and the Water Commissioners. 

Final approval of the Harbor Dredging Project was 
received from the Federal Government during the year . The 
Town has notified the Federal Government that funds are 
available for its share of the estimated work. The share to 
be met by the Commonwealth was not voted in the 1966 bud- 
get as passed by the legislature . The Board has been advised 
by the Department of Public Works that the indications are 
favorable for the passage of this budget item in the up- 
coming legislative year„ 

The status of the Hingham Ammunition Depot Annex 
continues unchanged. 

During the year, repairs to the Town Clock were 
completed by Mr. Danf or th Lincoln, Mr. Arnold Weeks, and 
Mr. Prescott Cumner, who acted both as committee and as 
workers in completing the work. 



152 



The Board is especially appreciative of such coop- 
erative efforts from our townspeople, which matches the 
high calibre of effort and performance that has been enjoyed 
throughout the Town Departments, 

Respectfully submitted, 

GEORGE W, Mclaughlin, chairman 

NATHANIEL HURWITZ 

HELEN E. SCRIPTURE 



REPORT OF THE AARON RIVER COMMITTEE 

Honorable Board of Selectmen: 

Through the efforts of the Board of Selectmen ^d 
others, a profile and location study of the Aaron River was 
made available by the Massachusetts Department of Public 
Works, Waterways Division for our review on 21 January 
1966. After discussion with the Cohasset Water Commis- 
sioners, itwas resolved that a Chapter 91 stream clearance 
project to eliminate flooding would lower the stream flow 
line so that the proposed water diversion at the Pumping 
Station for water supply storage would be both difficult and 
expensive. Since a drainage study is being requested by the 
Water Commissioners through Federal assistance, it was 
concluded that the results of this further study should be 
available before any master plan for the utilization of Aaron 
River for water supply is made. 

So that flooding problems on Aaron River may be 
relieved, an article is being presented at this 1966 Town 
Meeting to request an appropriation to clean, repair and 
otherwise improve the stream flow to its original state with- 
out significantly changing the stream location or flow line at 
this time. 

Respectfully submitted, 

AARON RIVER COMMITTEE 

GEORGE E, HALEY 

STEWART S. SARGENT

An urgent personnel need was filled when the position 
of Health Agent was converted in 1965 from a part-time 
(three days per week) to a full-time basis. Because of the 
irregular nature of much of the field investigation and in- 
spection this has resulted in quicker, more effective work 
in connection with nuisance complaints and installation of 
sewage disposal systems. The increased time available to 
the Agent also permits an improved public health program in 
many areas and a better control of expenses and department- 
al operations . The Board expresses its grateful recognition 
for loyal and efficient services rendered in 1965 by its Health 
Agent, Mr. Vento, and all other personnel. 

SOIL INVENTORY REPORT 

A 67 page report was prepared by the Soil Conservat- 
ion Service, U.S. Department of Agriculture and delivered 
to the Town in July 1965, with accompanying maps. The re- 
port was based on aerial photographs , existing maps , field 
surveys , test borings , and numerous soil analyses . The first 
section of the report, ''General Soil Areas, " provides inform- 
ation suitable for broad, overall planning purposes as a zon- 
ing guide. The section, ''Soil Interpretations for Specific 
Land Uses "furnishes a map and description of the limitations 
of soils in the Town for the following uses: sewage disposal 
commercial and industrial sites, home sites, athletic fields, 
wetland wildlife sites, sources of sand and gravel, roads. 



i 



154 



woodlands, relationof soils to surface runoff, and land slope 
characteristics. The third section is entitled "Description 
of Soils and Land Types, "and this is supplemented by a 
technical appendix. Under the sponsorship of the Conserva- 
tion Commission a public meeting was held at Town Hall on 
September 8, 1965, at which the report was described and 
town officials and citizens had an opportunity to question Mr. 
Ritzer, Soil Conservationist, and Mr. Upham, Senior Soil 
Scientist, who prepared the report. Copies have been dis- 
tributed to interested Town Departments and to the League of 
Women Voters, whose interest and activity stimulated the 
preparation of Article 30 in the 1964 Town Meeting. The cost 
of the report was $1200, which is a small fraction of the 
cost to the town if equivalent work had been done by a private 
engineering firm. Extremely valuable reference material 
has thus been made available to all Town Departments con- 
cerenedinany way with land use. The Board of Health Pur- 
chased a limited number of extra copies of the report which 
may be obtained from the Health Agent at $2 per copy, the 
procurement cost. 

From the standpoint of the Board of Health the most 
important finding of the report was the extremely small 
amount of unbuilt land remaining in town that does not have 
severe limitations (impermeable soil, high water table, bed- 
rock close to surface, or excessive slope) for individual sew- 
age disposal. Of the land classified, 6490 acres had moder- 
ate or severe limitations, and only 44 acres, or 0.7%, were 
generally suitable for this purpose on the basis of the general 
residential zoning for 20, 000-square-foot lots. 



SUMMARY, CONFIRMED SEWAGE SYSTEM FAILURES, 1960-1965 

Because nuisances, pollution and resulting dangers 
to health constitute the most important public health problem 
for the Town of Cohasset, the Board of Health has reviewed 
its records of investigation of sewage disposal nuisances 
during the period of 1960-1965. 

Confirmed failures of sewage disposal systems are 
summarized in the table below, but it should be emphasized 
that the total figure underestimates the true figure by a con- 
siderable margin. This is due to omission of second or third 



155 



failures of a system of the same property, correction of 
nuisances by pum.ping out cesspools or septic tanks before any 
complaint is made, and pollution problems that undoubtedly 
exist without being detected. 

During 1960-1965 it is reasonable to estimate that one 
property out of every three or four experienced a disposal 
system failure in the area east of Route 3A, rather than one 
out of six or seven as shown in the Table. Although there is 
a concentration of very difficult problems in the center of 
town and the harbor area, the distribution of sewage complaints 
verified by investigation is suprisingly uniform over the built - 
upon areas of town. 

The Board is more strongly convinced than ever that 
the only satisfactory solution for Cohasset is a public sewerage 
system and supports the concept of orderly expansion of the 
plan to be presented at town meeting, especially to include 
all our schools at as early a date as practical.

TOWN DUMP DISPOSAL AREA 

Hours: 8:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m., daily except Monday and 
Holidays . 

The disposal area has been maintained in a sanitary 
condition under the efficient operation of the Superintendent. 
An extension of the fence has been accomplished within the 
past year, near the dumping area and also at the main gate. 
The well area has been cleaned out and repacked as recom- 
mended by the Fire Chief and Water Superintendent, as a 
measure to increase and maintain our water supply for fire 
protection. We did have water from the well throughout the 
summer in spite of the exceptional drought. 

As you know, the disposal area is constantly expand- 
ing. Expansion means more gravel, which is expensive, 
more work andcare by the superintendent , and more super- 
vision by the Board of Health. The Board is constantly 
striving to maintain the disposal area in a sanitary condition 
and also improve this area to the limit that the budget will 
allow. 

At this time, we would like to ask for the cooperation 
of the townspeople to place their garbage in the containers 
provided, to dump over the edge when possible or as close 
to the edge as possible, and to properly secure their trash 
in their vehicle on the way to the disposal area. Your coop- 
eration will be appreciated.

CASEWORK REPORT 

Mrs. Frances Wright, Social Service League 

Five cases were carried over from 1964, and four of them 
are still active. In addition, six other Board of Health cases 
received attention, although only three were opened cases. 
Three of the eight carried over and newly opened cases have 
required intensive help, and will continue to need it; four 
arestillopenfor occasional minor service, and one has been 
closed. /

REPORT OF THE WIRE SUPERINTENDENT 

To the Honorable Board of Selectmen: 

The following is the annual report of the Wire Depart- 
ment for the year 1965: 

WIRE INSPECTION 

Wire inspection fees and wiring permits were filed 
with the Town Accountant and Town Treasurer. 

The Commonwealth of Massachusetts has adopted a 
new Massachusetts Electrical Code made up by the Depart- 
ment of Public Safety — Board of Fire Prevention. This new 
code replaces the old National Code. All Electrical Con- 
tractors performing wiring and repairs are governed by this 
code in every Town and City in Massachusetts. 

ELECTRICAL INSTALLATIONS AND REPAIRS 

All repairs and new work to Town owned buildings 
were done by this department. Considerable new wiring in- 
stallations were done for the Water Department at Station 
#4 in connection with the new two million gallon Water Tank 
and new safety devices were installed. 

FIRE ALARM AND TRAFFIC SIGNALS 

Five miles of new overhead Fire Alarm wire was in- 
stalled and two new Fire Boxes . Many miles of overhead 
wire was repaired due to severe storms. New cross arms 
and hardware were installed to replace worn out old ones , 

All Fire Alarm Boxes and Traffic Signal Standards 
were painted. All Traffic signals were kept in good repair. 

I wish to express my thanks to the Honorable Board 
of Selectmen — all Town Officials, and to the men who worked 
with me. 

Respectfully yours, 

EDWARD P, MALLEY 

Superintendent of Wires

REPORT OF THE PLANNING BOARD 

The report of the Planning Board for 1965 is hereby 
submitted . 

The pressures of the expanding metropolitan area 
continue to be felt by the Town of Cohasset. These pressures 
are caused by the saturation of residential land close to the 
urban area and by improved highway transportation facilities 
from the suburbs to the urban center. To add to this pres- 
sure, the plans are now firm for an MBTA rapid transit 
extension as far as Hingham. Many more new people will 
plan to move to South Shore communities. 

Cohasset at such a time finds itself with a zoning by- 
law which allows 20,000 sq. ft. lots throughout most of the 
town and is the only town for miles around that is zoned so 
loosely. It finds itself with crowded schools but with no land 
reserved for future school sites. Such sites have been re- 
commended annually since the Benjamin Report of 1961. It 
finds itself with a serious water supply problem which can 
only be solved by capturing and storing more surface water. 
Butas the number of houses and cesspools increase the area 
from which suitable water can be collected is reduced. 

It is because of these conditions that the proposed 
Zoning Bylaw was presented to the Special Town Meeting for 
action on November ninth. It was the fateful night of the 
Great Blackout of the Northeast and because so many voters 
stayed away we think the town should vote again. The Plan- 
ning Board is therefore presenting the identical bylaw for 
action at the forthcoming Annual Town Meeting in March. 
Your only hope of controlling the growth of the town and the 
taxrate is to adopt this proposed bylaw. 

And while the Town is considering zoning bylaws the 
creation of new building lots goes on unabated. During the 
year three subdivisions were approved under the Subdivision 
Control Law containing a total of 93 lots . Twenty of these 
were at Forest Ave. and North Main St. , twenty more on a 
new road off Brewster Rd. in the Ledgewood Estates, and 
fifty-three on Fair Oaks Lane off Sohier St. As this is being 
written a preliminary plan for 102 houses on 12,000 sq. ft. 
lots has been proposed in Beechwood. This development

alone can put 200 more children in our schools. 

Thirty more lots were created during the year by 
dividing land that had frontage on existing streets o This 
means that the spaces between houses is growing smaller 
and that our town is rapidly losing the look of a sprawling 
country town which is the very thing that makes it so attrac- 
tive. The need for a properly restrictive zoning bylaw can- 
not be over stressed. 

Again the Planning Board acknowledges with gratitude 
the services of the men on its Zoning Advisory Committee, 
namely: Donald J. Evans, Louis F. Eaton, Jr., Roger B. 
Coulter, David E. Place, and Raymond G. Buckley. We 
also wish to thank the other boards and officers of the town 
for their continued support and cooperation. 

Very truly yours, 

ALBERT HABERSTROH, Chairman 

Cohasset Planning Board

REPORT OF THE PERSONNEL COMMITTEE 



The Committee has met regularly on the second 
Thursday of each month to attend Personnel needs » 

Committee recommendations to the Town Meeting 
of March 1965 proposed the Town to give a 4% pay increase 
to regular full time hired employees , and further to increase 
the allowable paid sick leave from 90 to 120 days. The 
townspeople approved of these recommendations by vote. 

At theendof 1964 the pay grade of most of Cohasset^s 
employees was slightly above the average of the surrounding 
towns. (Hull, Hingham, Scituate, Weymouth, Rockland, 
Norwell, Hanover, and Marshfield.) 

It is the hope of this Committee that the above in- 
dicated 4% raise will be sufficient to allow Cohasset to retain 
its reasonable pay position. 

We thank all townspeople for their cooperation in 
operations of this Committee. 

Respectfully submitted, 

G,G. CROCKER

SURVIVAL INSURANCE 



BE PREPARED — Know the warning signals. Check your 
emergency supplies. Decide where you would take cover : (1) 
In your cellar? or (2) in the excellent public shelters now 
available in the Cohasset area of the Navy Ammunition Depot. 
Enter by Doane St. from Beechwood or by Howe Road, oppo- 
site west end of Sohier St. 

THE TAKE COVER SIGNAL — On the sirens an up and down 

wailing. On the fire horns short blasts for 3 minutes. 

ALERT SIGNAL — If time permits which is very unlikely, on 
the sirens the high note held steadily. On the horns a sus- 
tained blast. 

KEEP EMERGENCY SUPPLIES — 1. Non perishable foods. 
2. Water in covered containers. 3. Battery powered radio. 
4. Flashlight, lantern, camp stove. 5. In your car keep your 
gas tank at least half filled. 

HURRICANE — Fasten your house shutters. Stay away from 
windows. Do not touch fallen wires. Telephone only neces- 
sary emergency calls. 

FLOODS — Remove motors and valuables to upper floors. 
Shut off electricity at main switch before evacuating. 

TORNADO — If at home : Take refuge in cellar of strongest 
house nearby, and lie on face under table or other strong 
piece of furniture, in corner toward approaching storm. If no 
cellar, lie under strong piece of furniture against inside wall. 

If in open: Proceed at right angles to path of storm. If there 
is no time to escape storm's path, lie face down in ditch or 
other depression.
